About this Event

In this Cadogan Session for musicians and composers, Ailie Robertson will help participants develop a deeper understanding of the harp and how to write for it. There will also be an opportunity for composers to workshop excerpts of music they've written for the harp, and receive tips and suggestions from Ailie. Any excerpts should be submitted to haley@chambermusicscotland.com at least one week in advance of the session.

Time will be made available for networking after the event.
